Detroit Tigers sign DJ Peters to Minor League Deal

The Detroit Tigers have signed former Los Angeles Dodgers top-10 prospect, D.J. Peters, to a Minor League contract this afternoon. Peters has spent the majority of the last season in Korea and is 27 years old.

Why it Matters:

More organizational depth is being added to the farm system with the acquisition of Peters. He is primarily a center fielder but has spent time at both corners. He will most likely slot into AAA and become a potential backfill for injuries or needed depth.

  • The Tigers have an opening at one of the corner outfield positions.
  • DJ Peters grades out as a 70 for raw power.
  • He played the majority of 2022 in Korea, before signing with the Washington Nationals to finish the season.

D.J. Peters by the numbers:

According to FanGraphs Peters is an, “all-or-nothing bat that flashes big power but doesn’t make nearly enough contact…an increasingly popular profile across the game. However, he is a tweak or two – or even just some good BABIP and HR/FB luck – away from fantasy viability.”

  • For his career, DJ Peters has played in 70 games and has 240 plate appearances.
  • He has 13 career home runs and a career slash line of .197/.242/.422
  • He is an all-or-nothing type of hitter with a 5.0% walk rate and 34.2% strikeout rate in those 70 games, which can be considered a small sample size.
  • He grades out decently, at least league-average as a defender in any outfield position.
  • He’s six-foot, six inches tall, and weighs in at 225 lbs.
